After I Complete A Short Sale How Long Do I Have To Wait To Buy Another Home?

Hello this is Shawn Polston with Tucson Short Sale Negotiator, thank you for checking out my blog today. Having worked on short sales in Tucson for a while now one of the biggest concerns a homeowner will have is when can they buy a home again after completing a short sale or foreclosure. For today’s blog I will be including some great information from a conversation I had with Tom Heath on this subject. Tom is an expert in the mortgage industry and has twelve years of experience working with homeowners to educate them on how the lending process works and how a persons specific financial situation will affect their mortgage. In talking with Tom one thing he stressed above all others is that there are general guidelines but every person has a unique situation which garners a unique result. According to Tom someone who completes a short sale will have to wait roughly three years before being able to qualify for a mortgage again. In the case of a foreclosure it can take up to seven years. Tom also pointed out that a big determining factor is how many mortgage payments were missed during the short sale. In a short sale the biggest damage to your credit is how many mortgage payments are missed not the actual short sale of the property. In fact, Tom even shared a story about a client who was able to get a mortgage only months after finishing a short sale. According to Tom if your credit is in good standing after a short sale it falls on the bank to determine if a customer is too risky or not. I’m sure many of you have questions in regards to your specific situation and I would be happy to answer them. Please visit my website or contact me today to set up a free consultation. If you have questions specifically for Tom Heath I would be more than happy to get you in contact with him as soon as possible. Thank you for tuning in to Tucson Short Sale Negotiator and have a wonderful day.
